The third and final expansion for Shovel Knight has been revealed at the Nindies Summer Showcase. As previously announced, King of Cards will feature King Knight as the playable character and will see a new card-based mechanic introduced to shakeup the gameplay somewhat.
This DLC follows the Plague of Shadows and Specter of Torment expansions. These are available for free to anyone who owned the original Shovel Knight game, which was updated to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove following its release on the Nintendo Switch. This latest expansion will be available as a standalone purchase like the other campaigns.
By decree, you are royally invited to the unveiling of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove's final adventure!
